“The accurate story about America is the one where it is the most free and wonderful and most prosperous country for people of all races and that’s the story that needs to be told rather than hyping conflict that people have,” Hemingway told host Howard Kurtz. “Yes, human nature is bad and there will be bad instances. But we don’t want to neglect the overarching story of why so many people love this country and want to come here.”
MOLLIE HEMINGWAY: This is a great example of the media being factual without being accurate. Not that it’s a tweet that he should have tweeted or put up. It appeared to show someone sarcastically responding to someone accusing him of holding these views by sarcastically saying he did. And this is a very big issue right now and we need the media to really do a good job, rather than provoke racial conflict. You have a lot of people advocating hatred toward white people, you’re going to have responses like this and it needs to be very careful. I think the media seems to want to provoke conflict rather than to remind people this is a wonderful country where people get along very well and where we are the best country in the world on some of these things.
